Procedure and House Affairs committee Can we have a recorded vote, please? (Motion negatived: nays 5; yeas 4)
Procedure and House Affairs committee As I said, the objective would be to provide recommendations to the minister in an attempt to maintain the integrity of the election insofar as possible. That to me is the objective. I think that our analysts are capable enough and we as a committee are prudent enough to be able
Procedure and House Affairs committee Yes, sure.
Procedure and House Affairs committee Implemented?
Procedure and House Affairs committee First of all, let me say I'm very fortunate to have top secret clearance. It's a process that's very uncomfortable. I'm not sure everyone in this committee would want to undertake it. Beyond that, I definitely hear what you're saying. I do consider this when I am personally eva
Procedure and House Affairs committee Yes, I would absolutely be open to anything that we can find that will provide us some insight or shed some light. I genuinely believe the government, as in many nations across the world stage, is struggling to find, in this case, concrete legislative solutions, but also solution
Procedure and House Affairs committee Sorry. I appreciate that. I am formal by nature too, David, coming from the diplomatic world. I feel as though this would—
Procedure and House Affairs committee Okay, well, now I'm curious. I'll have to sneak a peek at your driver's licence or passport sometime.
Procedure and House Affairs committee Of course, yes, Mr. Zimmer, since I can refer to him by name.... Thank you. I generally feel that there would be so much to gain from this in so many dimensions of the public sphere and perhaps the private sphere as well, which, of course, we are not obligated to...but can certa
Procedure and House Affairs committee I would have to check, but their study was largely related to privacy, as I understand it. I would ask our analysts to expand further if they have any more information specifically regarding the Cambridge Analytica scenario. I think they're doing a lot as well, as I understand it
Procedure and House Affairs committee I certainly appreciate Mr. Bittle's comments with regard to the discussion and evaluation of topics during Bill C-76. Unfortunately, I was not here for the bulk of it, but I feel as though that was really with regard to the legislation at hand. It was an opportunity to reflect up
Procedure and House Affairs committee I'm not sure if I have to raise a point of order further to the situation with the bells and unfortunately where we had the time allocation vote on the last visit of the minister, but I wanted to bring forward again the motion I had. I'm not sure. Was it tabled or did we just di
Procedure and House Affairs committee Okay, I do have another copy of it today here again. The motion asks that we “continue the study of Security and Intelligence Threats to Elections; that the study consist of five meetings”—since the group didn't like the original 12 meetings I suggested, although I feel there i
Procedure and House Affairs committee I can look at a lifetime and I can certainly make a judgment. I've said before I have nothing but respect for you and the individual who did your previous appointment. I am not questioning you; I am questioning the process that was used to place you there by the Liberal governmen

Procedure and House Affairs committee Thank you, Chair. Mr. Johnston, this is very hard for me to ask, one, because I like you; two, because you were previously appointed by a man I respect very much; and three, because I don't have five bucks. I'm looking at the process by which you were selected. It was not an op
